McLaren Takes a Flyer on New Feather Body Wrap

McLaren, the creator of luxury sports and supercars from Woking, England, has announced the introduction of a Feather Wrap as an option for its 570GT model.  Offered through the company’s bespoke division, MSO, nearly 10,000 carbon-veined artificial feathers are applied to the car’s body.  The process, which is done by hand, takes 300 hours. The 570GT was chosen as the initial recipient for the new body finish as it’s the McLaren most suited to long flight-like journeys across continents.  It’s on such occasions where the aerodynamic benefits of one of nature’s best inventions, the feather, can be most felt.
